Full on Fall

Okay, fall is in full swing in my classroom. I've officially turned the air off, I'm giving jacket reminders, conferences are this week, fall break at the end of the week, and we are changing up our bulletin boards. 

We had Johnny Appleseed on the brain. I got some apples and we did apple stamping,
Pinterest gave me the idea to use a corn on the cob holder for stamping
and we put together our Johnny Appleseed writing craftivities from Primary Possibilities 
sorry, this poor Johnny on the bottom left cracks me up. 
Then to transition we made some really cute scarecrows (from All Students Can Shine)
Which one of these is not like the others?

Nope, not exactly supposed to look like this but this is what one of my darlings did.
Then we we made those pumpkin tissue paper window decorations I made last year. (It went soooo much better this year so I think I learned a thing or two...

"Here's what we just finished up:

Short fat pumpkin

long skinny pumpkin

I still didn't do contact paper. We just went slower and I had them cut the templates out in small groups with me.  We also cut our squares out together step-by-step (took longer but so much handier than some kids ending up with tiny squares)
Then we did the edges and filled the inside together. 

I know this is getting long but I also want to share our fire station trip! Each year we walk down to the fire station (it's about 5 minutes down the road). The firemen do some fire safety lessons and we get to look at the fire trucks.

Maybe their scarecrow is a girl with sticky up hair? I love the apple stamps!

Keep Calm and Apple On
